What is ForkLift for Mac

ForkLift is a powerful file manager and ferociously fast FTP client clothed in a clean and versatile UI that offers the combination of absolute simplicity and raw power expected from a well-executed Mac software.

ForkLift will connect to any remote server SFTP, FTP, WebDAV, Amazon S3, Backblaze B2, Google Drive, Rackspace CloudFiles, SMB, AFP and NFS shares on your local network,- pretty much anything you can plug into or hook up to a Mac.

I bought ForkLift for 4 years. From the very beginning of using this application, there was a huge bug in it. I am neither American nor English. There are files with Cyrillic on my hosting. So ForkLift does not know how to work correctly with unicode. When transferring files from the server via FTP to my Mac, the names of files with Cyrillic letters are displayed as porridge with hieroglyphs. And an error is reported about the inability to copy these files. This application knows how to mock you, periodically, in 50 cases, it transfers files, then does not transfer. I have to restart the entire application many times and hopes that this time the files with the Cyrillic alphabet will finally be displayed correctly and I will be able to upload files from the server to my computer. Moreover, all my other applications, both on Mac and Windows, work without errors, because I have a well-known and popular Hosting in Finland. The problem lies in the ForkLift application. I have reported this error to the support more than once and asked to fix this bug, but instead I received their latest update, which now does not work with Cyrillic at all in 100% of cases. Decide for yourself whether you want to get an apple bitten off by someone (this ForkLift) for money (30 €) or look for a fresh, whole apple, i.e. some good application that will not mock you. I'm too proud to let Satan humiliate me.

With this update 3.5.1, the “Forklift Mini” menu no longer appears in the menu bar: continuous bugs since the previous version 3.5!

Am encountering speed issues, errors etc. Not sure if it related to changes with MacOS or my hosting service.. but I am now back to good old Transmit.. and no such problems. Maybe FL needs an update.. who knows.

Although, handy for generic tasks, I consider Forklift 3 in multiple ways underdeveloped. For example, dragging and dropping files from Dock or Finder into Favourites, Devices or sub-folders does not work. Folders don't expand on spring-load. View options (e.g sort order) is not saved. Mouse-clicking to rename a file or folder does not always work as expected.

It has this "preparing" thing before uploads that makes it really slow (several minutes) compared to free options like Cyberduck and Filezilla. With Cyberduck or Filezilla it takes literally seconds to upload the same files.. I fully removed/reinstalled the app and tried again with same results.. Help from support is non responsive even for paid customers like myself. Too bad!

I've been using FTP on Mac's for over 20 years and have own and tried many FTP clients. Forklift is the best, bar none in my opinion. It can almost double as the Finder. My favorite features is using Favorites to open to different folders on different volumes and then Syncing them with one click. **LOVE Forklift**

Was using ParthFinder (PF) for years and move to ForkLift (FL) as PF price sheme changed. After months, I can say it was a great move as FL beat PF on many options. Thank you PF.
